The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Eileen Gatt - Jeweller and Silversmith
 
CRAFT IN FOCUS
 
Scottish jewellery designer and silversmith Eileen Gatt has been designing and making jewellery for over 20 years.
 
Based in the picturesque Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands, Eileen is fascinated by the mystical interaction between people and the sea, and often uses traditional customs and superstitions as starting points for her designs. Her whimsical yet sophisticated creations evoke a sense of nostalgia and allow the wearer to create their own sense of attachment and meaning. Eileen also loves to inject a little humour where possible!
 
Over the span of her career Eileen has invested her years both in developing her distinctive collections, as well as supporting emerging talent through her time spent teaching at jewellery institutions across the country. In her early career, Eileen won a Royal Academy scholarship to work with Inuit stone carvers in Alaska, an experience which has fuelled her fascination with the Arctic ever since. Having collaborated with storytellers from both Scotland and North America, Eileen continues to draw her inspiration from the Polar wilderness and Inuit culture, Scottish folklore and landscapes, and the small fishing communities found along Scotland’s East Coast.

An international research team developed a powerful adhesive with comparable strength to Superglue, made of plant-based cellulose nanocrystals and without the need for toxic solvents. https://materialdistrict.com/article/biobased-superglue-toxic-solve...

The Jewellery Art Association
 
The jewellery art association was founded in Lappeenranta in 2005. The association aims to promote contemporary jewellery in Finland and to improve its recognition as an art and design form. Another goal of the association is to increase awareness about Finnish jewellery internationally. As means towards those ends, the association organizes exhibitions, presentations and discussion panels, and distributes information about events.
